Later, they lodged a police complaint at Tezpur Sadar Police Station and a case has been registered vide No.366/302/201 of IPC.
Numal Mahatta, Additiol Superintendent of Police, Sonitpur, said, “The doctor had done postmortem of the body and seeing the body turn blue in colour, it led to further doubt. Since the necessary equipments were not readily available here at Kaklata Civil Hospital, the body was sent to Tezpur Medical College and Hospital for further examition meticulously. We are just waiting for the fil report and as soon as the report comes, necessary action will be taken as deemed fit.”
